Re: Introducing myself
In response to Peter's request, I thought I'd let you know why I'm
interested in this list. I am president and founder of a local neighborhood
group in NYC, Neighbors Against N.O.I.S.E. (Noxious Odors Incessant Sounds
and Emissions), which is dedicated to eliminating noise and other pollution
in the Tribeca West Historic District, a small neighborhood in lower
Manhattan. Our current, primary focus is one building in the center of the
neighborhood that is a major telecommunications hub -- with lots of computer
equipment and thus, many air conditioners and diesel-powered emergency
generators -- that generates and ever-increasing amount of noise. I am also
a member of the Steering Committee for International Noise Awareness Day, a
project of the Noise Center of the League for the Hard of Hearing, which I'm
sure you observed yesterday.
I must confess that, while I am concerned about noise and it's impact on
health and quality of life, this is only a small part of my life.
Professionally, I am an organizational development consultant working
primarily with not-for-profit organiations on board development, governance
design, strategic planning, leadership transitions and the like. I find
that I rarely have anything to contribute to the group, but do enjoy the
disucssions, and especially helpful hints and leads on new resources.
